She's a survivor. Whatever else you're inclined to say about Britney Spears, it can't be denied: the career launched back in 1999 with the candy-apple salaciousness of " Baby One More Time" is now 12 years, seven albums, and a couple dozen dance-pop megahits old. She's still thriving, valiantly fighting off the paparazzi, a host of personal demons, and a steady stream of pop-star adversaries currently led by Lady Gaga. Brit's new album, Femme Fatale, might just catapult her back to the top of the mountain; join us as we give it a closer look, celebrate her old hits, place her in the pantheon of gay icons, and more.
